Yes I would have loved this cake for my birthday.
I would even have loved this cake for my birthday.
Did I get any cake for my birthday, nada, no, zilch, nothing. My sister forgot, went out to lunch and didn't invite me, didn't say Happy Birthday when she dropped into the Home for her usual 10 minutes.
Nephew rang yesterday, very apologetic but then he never remembers his own birthday, I have to do it for him. He sold a car from my driveway so said he would buy me anything I wanted. All I want is him at my door when I need a lift or have an urgent need for fish and chips for tea, like now.
Mother made me a card and even managed to write in it with wibblywobbly writing but the 'take whatever you need and buy something nice' was quite clear.
The Divine O'Dyne sent me a present, the kind that keeps on keeping on. Big black ribbon, check, big strong box to be re-used for jewellery, check, lovely shiny paper which ironed out nicely, check and lots of goodies inside, check. Because this was the only present I received, I'm only looking at one thing a day.
HighRiser did not bring me back a little rock from a glacier or Niagara Falls. Shitty card for Christmas for him.
Nothing from my sister.
Phone call from youngest granddaughter, 21 in November. Knows her own mind, just wish knowing she wants to be a missionary come Minister of some nutjob Christian Church in California where she has been studying for the past year wasn't so high on her agenda. Already she has missionaried in Rio and plans to do it all over the world. She was very careful not to tell me exactly what Church or where it is in California.
Sometimes it's better not to know anything at all about their lives.
Eldest went to India this year. I really loved all the postcards that didn't arrive.
I have picked out a, not a wheelie, they're called Rollators with extra wide seat for extra wide sitting part. Now just to sell the treadmill on ebay. Diabetes educator has not realized I haven't been back and I'm not going back. Walk, she said, you must walk for the good insulin levels. The insulin might have done something but the arthritis in the crumbling foot belted it up a notch. So now I've graduated to a Rollator. I wish these people would see that the 'one size fits all' cure/diet for diabetics doesn't always work and it hasn't worked on me.
So sad to see Bronnie's gone from the Speaker's chair, I was looking forward to another month of LOLs but here we have Darth Ruddock rising from the dead, croaking and groaning but ever willing to take the load on his shoulders. I must be feeling better if Parliament is giving me a laugh.
A word of warning, don't ever buy a Peanut Butter ice cream Magnum. I'm warning you Magnum, don't get all arty with the flavours or I'll leave you in a ditch. I'm still trying to get the noxious flavour out of my mouth. Who ever thought that would be a good idea is not human. There is nothing good about peanut butter ice cream, nothing.
